The Journal has the following special
from Tombstone: This town is excited
over the killing of five Americans by
Mexicans. Dick Gray, Billy Lang,

were those killed, and a man named
Harris wounded. John Graj- and Mr.
Ames arrived from New Mexico this af¬
ternoon and gave the following partic¬
ulars of the killing: Five days ajfo Billy
Laing, son of Mr. Lang, butcher, left
here for his cattle ranch, accompanied
by Billy Byers and Chas. Sncw, to bring
in cattle. Old man Clanton, formerly
living in San Pedro, and Dick Gray, of
Tombstone, who owns tTro ranches in
the vicinity of Lang's ranch, were help¬
ing to get up the cattle. The camp was
surprised while all were asleep by a
party of Mexicans. Three Americans
killed by the first fire, two others were
killed outright and the sixth, Harris,
was shot through the abdomen and left
for dead, but is still living-. James

the Flame j.
Friday morning at 3:15 a. si. Tucson
was startled by tho cry of "Firo! fire!
fire!" and the telephone sounded the
alarm in all directions, while the streets
were filled with crowds of excited men
and women, who were rushing towards
tho store of William Zeckondorf & Co.,
from which the flames illuminated the
heavens. On arriving at tho store we
found the clerlis, who slept in the store,
busy carrying out their personal effects
and the office furniture. Soon the Hook
and Ladder Company camn ni, and ac¬
tive work on the building commenced.
In the work the firemen were assisted
by many citizens, among whom notably
were W. C. Davis, James C. Terry,
F. H. Bunts, j?. B. Knox, Sol Schwab,
M. AV. Cohn iind others. Jack Bolyn,
foreman of the Hook and Ladder Com¬
pany, directed the movements, leiiig as¬
sisted by Mr. Hamburg, whose knowl¬
edge of this premises was invaluable.
Mr. Bolyn has jroved himself the right
man in the right place, and was the
brain and muscle of the success in fight¬
ing the flames. About 100 blankets were
used in extinguishing the fire, and the
Babcock extinguishers, under Second
Assistant Fireman D. J. Tobin, did gal¬
lant service and proved tliat onr fire
company is of excellent material. W.
L. Brooks, clerk in the postoffice, was
also one of the most active firemen. In
35 minutes the danger was over, though
it took active exertions for several hours
to extinguish the fire in the ruins.

started in thecbthing room, iu which a
large lamp was iJExed to a lianging, nnd
which was al wave. kept burning dimly to
give a little light, to the clerta who slept
m the store. In some unaccountable
manner, at half-past 2 a. m. it exploded,
but the clerks promptly put it out, as
they supposed, nnd went to bed. An
hour later the flames were in the ceil¬
ing, and the clerks barely escaped with
their lives, thoufh they aided in saving
tho office furniture and books.
Messrs. M. W. Cohn, Domingo Ricardo

of the firm for their efforts.
The loss of Mirers. Wm. Zeckendorf

An Open Letter fo.the Editor of the
Tmsox, August 13, 188L
Editor Crrcnan In this moming't
Star appears an editorial beaded "The
United States Register." For some time
past little flings have appeared in that
paper against tliis officer; evidently a
-studied attempt on the part of the Star
management to manufacture nnd mould
public opinion i .gainst tho now incum¬
bent of that office Judge Connies.
Now, the insinuations against a
-worthy and accomplished officer are
unfair in the extreme, and would be
looked for from no other sheet except
such a puny tlmg as the Star. This
is the second time that paper "has had
information froia responsible parties"
that something was wrong in the United
States Land Office, or the Register
thereof. Now, Mr. Star man, we make
the declaration, n otwithatanding you. say
it has been "stated," etc, that no 're-
nponsible parties" have taken the "iniia-
tive," or are abont to (L e.) weigh the
reeponsibility by any other standard
than that of thoic persons who feel ag¬
grieved at, perhaps, the just decision of
tliis officer, and imagine the whole world
must listen always to their selfish com¬
plaints. Now, Mr. Star, bchonost; own
up; tell your readers that yours is purely
a selfish whine; tliat if the United States
Register had givtai you the advertising
for patents of mining claims the glasses
through which rou look would have
been of a- differen-: color. You know this
to be the case so stop your howling and
Tho public clftsii you with other black¬
mailers, and regard your contemptible
flings simply an attempts to force the
Register to patrorize your sheet.

The pan capacity is not yet sufficient for
tho excellent ten-stamn belonirinir to the

been struck in one of the Warsaw shafts,

but careful average assays all exceeded

The Montana Company have iust triven

Montana tunnel along the vein, nnd to

is a large body of ore in sight in this

The Leon of the I'Icodf.
The oxporienco of the past few weeks
of rainy weather in Arizona will event¬
ually prove a blessing to tho Southern
Pacific Railroad Company, although it
bo a costly lesson. When the railroad
was being built across the Territory,
speed of construction was deemed para¬
mount to its permanency. The roadbed
for long distances lay across compar¬
atively level and barren deserts, broken
here ami thereby solitary buttes and
small mountain ranges. Bnt little labor
was needed to establish the required
grade in the yielding sand, and the
record of former floods; as recorded by
the iaanv dry arroyos, was scarcely
heeded in the work of construction,
small bridges being made to span the
largest and inadequate culverts the lesser
washes. So far as the character of the
ground permitted, tho roadbed was
othcrwiso well made, and for a dry-
weather road had no equal anywhere.
Jiut tlw voluminous rain fell tins sum¬
mer with sudden and irresistible force
upon the small mountain ranges and ex¬
tended vary generally over the deserts,
and the concentrated -waters met bnt
little reristance in the railroad while
speeding on their course toward the
sea, and the treacherous Band
cave way like the melting of snow un¬
der a tropical sun, leaving the wrecked
track in a most discouraging condition.
Workmen by the hundred were kept
busy day and night, directed by exper¬
ienced, skillfnl and intelligent builders,
yet they were unable to cope with the
force of the waters, and ofttimes tho la¬
bors of the day wonld be destroyed in
the night Besides the immense cx-
Iense incurred in these wholesale re¬
pairs, the interruption of railroad com¬
munication has subjected the people of
the whole Territory to great annoyance
and inconvenience and vexatious and
cxpensiTO delays, that they hope will
never again nnd a repetition.
Upon the railroad company tho lesion
will not be lost, and before another Hum¬
mer rolls around the grade of tho road
-will probably be raised in some locali¬
ties, and the track held firmly in iosi-
tion by a system of piling, with adequate
opening-.! left through a respectful def¬
erence to future deluges. It is safe to
say tliat in future years no serious dfir
lays will occur by reason of washouts,
unless the olumo of water increases in
proportion to the precautions taken to
overcome! its disastrous effects.

I have lieen prosjecting in and

have been nnd are here, and havejlocated
soma most excellent properties. The

by the way, is a Jive instead of n ten-

Emmett and Missouri, the property of
another company, are the snierior prop¬
erties, so far as developed, in the Min¬
eral Creek district To the west, or
southwest, or Mineral creek, are the Bo-
laager copper mines. These in time will
prove most excellent and valuable acqui¬
sitions to tho men who prefer copper to
silver mines. East of Mineral Creek
district six miles is the Pioneer camp.
The outlook is not as good, and tho

of value, because of the many puffs
given it, not only by its owners, but by
the Silver Belt editor, who, by tho way,
I am told, receives stock for his hercu¬

25,000 shares in this mine, and the bull

The Capo May (N. J.) Wave of the
12th instant has the following notice of
one of Pima countyVi most enterprising
mining men, and does not exaggerate
tho value of lhe properties he represents:
We vestenlay had the pleasure of
meeting Mr. B.F. Bivins, the able man¬
ager of the Gnnsight Mining Company
of Arizona, at present enjoying a brief
rest at Congress Hall. His mission east
is for the purpose of completing the or¬
ganization of his company and establish¬
ing for it the confidence of thejtiusinesa
men and capitalists who are being made
interested shareholders in the concern'
This company was inroriiorated in May
under the laws of tlus. State. The Gun-
sight property consists of three claims,
each 1500 feet in lengUi by COO feet in
width, and is situated in Meyers' mining
district, Arizona. It is destined to be¬
come one of the richest and best-paying
mines of the entire region. A. Caldwell,
an eminent miner of twenty years ex¬
perience, reports that ho never tsar such
indications for immense mines as ho has
iu the case of tho Gunsight, and that tho
mines of tho district round about it will
eventually astonish the world. Mr.
Bivins informs us that his efforts so far
have been crowned with the most flatter¬
ing results, and"that in a vory short time
the amount of sto -;k necessary to place the
company on n solid basis will be sub¬
scribed. 200,000 shares at a par value of
$10, comprise the capital stock, $2,000,-
000. They are offered at a subscription
price of S2.50.

Comanche Bill has already figured in
several such stories, but little was really
known of his earlier life and history.
He is taciturn almost to a fault, nnd loth
to speak of himself. In the far est
his reputation as guide, scout and inter¬
preter is great, and he looks with scorn
on such lesser luminaries as Buffalo Bill
and other would-be heroes. In fact, Co¬

with a broad chest and brawny arms and
an iron frame, which fatigue cannot
ovcreomo nor exertion subdue. He lias
a slightly aquillinc nose, a piercing gray
or dark bluo eye and is in all respects
the typical scout and frontiersman of
fact and fiction.
When seen by tho reporter Bill had
already moulted his buckskin suit and
assnmed the garb of civilization, but he
still wore his riding boots and pants, a
dark bluo flannel shirt and the indescrib¬
able heavy hat -with a depth and curva¬

che Bill.' Another man said he didn't
blamo the Indians for what they had
done that day. I jumped over the table
and scalped that fellow, and I'd do it
again to-day if anybody commenced to
make another such talk."
The conversation then took a general
turn and by the aid of frequent potations
of the milder grades of fire-water loqui¬
tur and listeners began to brighten up.
" Bill," askeil tho reporter, 44 what is
your opinion ot Indians?"

An incident illustrating tho nobleness
of heart and gallantry toward women of
mountain men is related of Bilk which
hatpened in Wichiti a few wqeks since.
Bill rode into town dressed in a com¬
plete suit of buckskin and with a gang
of houefet rangers at his back. As he
wont along he saw a "counter jnnipcr,"
as lie was pleased to call him, roughly
catch a little girl about eighteen years
old (Bill's idea of a -little" girl) by the
shoulder and solicit her attention. The
girl withdrew her arm angrily, and just
then the scene fell tinder Bill's personal
"She was a poor girl," says Bill, "and

going to see her insulted by any durned

I jest jumped down from my boss and I
called for that fellowTo stop. He didn't
teem to want to, but I made him stop.
I took up the Utile girl in my arms and
sat her down on a box. I took off her
shoes and said to the counter jumper:
Now I want yon to get down and lick

feet whom yon have insulted.' And I

said the other, " follow me." They went
out as far as tho corner ot the garden,
where tho muddy Lino woidd have to lie
crossed. The man with tho " spunk "
stopped, saying " this is far enough."
" So," said tho other, " como on," as ho
plunged into tho muddy water in the
lane and crept through tho barbed
wire feiv-e nnd sitting down by the tree
coolly. The spunky man, fearing he
might mean mischief, nnd not wanting
to fight over a barbed fence and n water
ditch, returned to tho park. In about
twenty minutes a Mexican boy rushed
into the park and said a man had just
shot himi'ulf. Joe Bayer and the man ot
spunk went over, and sure enough there
ho was, kQI sitting against the tree but
dead. The man being left-handed, had
shot himself on the left side of the neck,
the bullet ranging upwards and coming
out over the left ear. What ho meant
by asking the inaa to follow him can
only lie conjectured. Ho may have fal¬
tered in his purtK.c nnd wanted somo
other party to firo the fatal shot, or he
may havo wanted a Bpunky man to ac¬
company him in his final tragio act or he
may have wanted an eye-witness. Who
